Dying Star

By Rosalynn Nayani

I miss you
So much
That it hurts
I can't breathe

You were
Always there
Now it is
As though
You were just
A fleeting summer breeze

I gave you
My heart
And you
Shattered it
Into a million pieces

Did I
Do something wrong
What did I
Ever do to you

You told me
You loved me
But I guess
That is the biggest lie
That I have ever heard

Like a dying star
In the sky
So am I

    You should not blame yourself because it will drive you mad. All the pondering thoughts and self-loathing with make you bitter. Use this time to try and salvage what is left of you, and the hell with the negative that surrounds you. Written with poise and color, nice to see a bleeding heart in the process of healing. Beautifully scripted! Bows- Scholar
